Single use products such as clothes or plastic packaging lose their value quickly but harm our environment indefinitely. I extracted yarn from plastic bottles using a custom-made tool. The plastic yarn varies depending on the thickness and colour of the bottle. Due to the stiffness of the material, the crochet stitches are made with much larger loops. At the beginning I had the feeling that the plastic yarn was leading because of the memory of the curve of its previous life as a plastic bottle. But as the piece grew and expanded the plastic yarn deformed and bent to adapt itself to and follow the wishes of my hands.
